Book Review -- Long Gone by Alafair Burke

Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to read and review this book.


This was the story of the daughter of a famous Hollywood film director. She is framed for the murder of a man who is not who he said he was; a man who had carved a false identity for her too, unbeknown to her. The question is who has tried to frame her? Is it her father, who is well known for his many indiscretions? And if so why?

There are many characters in this book, but they are easy to follow. It was interesting to see where they all fit in to the story line, and how their paths crossed. To start with the pace of the book was quite slow but it soon had me wanting to read more. 

Part of the story line dragged out in relation to a missing girl, and was a bit of a let down when that part of the story came to it's conclusion. All in all though it was a good read.

Please note that I have not been paid to read or review this book and the opinion is entirely my own.
